Stevie Nicks will be joining the cast of “Coven” on Season 3’s American Horror Story, according to the show’s producer Ryan Murphy. Murphy didn’t elaborate on Stevie’s level of participation on the hit FX series, but confirmed her upcoming appearance in the following tweet on his Twitter page this morning:

“Guess who’s visiting the Coven? The legendary Stevie Nicks!” @MrRPMurphy

A big fan of the legendary singer-songwriter, Murphy has cleverly woven Stevie into the show’s storyline, depicting mysterious character Misty Day as the hippie, swamp witch who loves everything Stevie Nicks. So far, the show has featured Stevie-penned songs “Edge of Seventeen,” “Rhiannon,” and “Sara,” with five more songs still be used in the show during the season.

Beyond the music, Murphy has also dropped subtle Stevie Nicks references in most of the episodes that have aired, which manifest in the characters’ gossamer witch wear, hairstyles (Myrtle Smith’s Street Angel root perm), and powers (The “Seven Wonders,” a nod to the Stevie Nicks co-written 1987 Fleetwood Mac song of the same title).
